Churchill Serves as Administrative Agent and Joint Lead Arranger for a Senior Secured Credit Facility in Support of Alpine Investors’ Portfolio Company Trilon Group

New York, NY, June 23, 2022 Churchill Asset Management (“Churchill”) today announced that it served as Administrative Agent and Joint Lead Arranger for a senior secured credit facility that will continue to support Alpine Investors’ portfolio company, Trilon Group (“Trilon” or the “Company”).

Trilon Group was formed by Alpine Investors with a vision to build the next Top 20 infrastructure services firm in North America by bringing together some of the nation’s best infrastructure consulting firms. Key focus areas include Transportation, Water, Utilities, Environment and Community Infrastructure. Trilon currently comprises 725 staff across 40 offices in the US.

“Trilon’s differentiated family of infrastructure consulting firms have incredibly strong customer relationships and high revenue retention, positioning the Company to further benefit from industry tailwinds such as the growing need for infrastructure investment and an increased focus on water treatment,” said Randy Schwimmer, Senior Managing Director and Co-Head of Senior Lending at Churchill. “Under Alpine Investors’ ownership, Trilon has successfully completed and integrated several acquisitions, and we are pleased to support the continued growth of the business.”

This financing marks the first transaction which Churchill’s senior lending team has completed in support of Alpine Investors, a people-driven private equity firm specializing in the software and services industries. Alpine Investors was founded in 2001 and is currently investing out of their over $2.25 billion eighth flagship fund.

“On our first transaction together, we were very impressed with Churchill’s professionalism, industry expertise, and ability to provide a sizeable and custom-tailored financing solution that can scale with Trilon’s business over time,” said Jack Armstrong, Head of Capital Markets at Alpine Investors. “We look forward to building our relationship with the Churchill team.”
